Drivers in Midtown Atlanta could face steeper fines for overstaying their welcome at hundreds of parking meters operated by ParkAtlanta, according to legislation set to be considered by Atlanta’s City Council.
The private company that runs Atlanta’s on-street parking program wants a larger and more predictable stream of revenue. Residents and visitors want relief from what some describe as hyper-aggressive parking enforcement.
Atlanta officials are trying to figure out a way to collect more parking revenue even as they try to placate business owners who say ParkAtlanta is driving away customers. Some business people say the burden should be spread throughout the city instead of concentrated in their neighborhoods.
